PR man Joe Winder didn't believe the theft of the last two blue-tongued voles on Earth from a billionaire's Florida theme park. He just wrote the story. Asking questions later was his biggest mistake. Before he could say Robbie Raccoon, he was hiding out in the Everglades with a one-eyed man and gun-toting granny in pink curlers - and ready to put the skids on the craziest crime con in the history of the state... Welcome to the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills! It's classic Carl Hiaasen. And live without him would be a pale imitation. 'Tirelessly inventive screwball thriller in which valiant-for-truth PR man outfaces sexually deviant dolphin, man-eating pet whale and sub-moronic goon addicted to steroids. Aaagh!' Guardian
